Great family Christmas vacation!

This is our 3rd time at a RIU property and we were pleased once again! Probably the best way to review the property is to list the pros and cons as we saw it. Pros: --Beautiful pools --Warm ocean with inviting waves --Friendly staff --Pretty good food at restaurants --Gorgeous Christmas tree and decorations in lobby --Outstanding Christmas Eve buffet --Spacious rooms with excellent housekeeping service --Large selection of drinks --Public bathrooms kept clean and stocked --Quiet on our hotel floor --Large, soft towels in rooms and at pool --Jerk hut chicken was outstanding Cons: --Beach and pool areas need to be kept cleaner from glasses/plates. A crew should go out to pick up right after sunrise. It's too bad that hotel guests can't seem to pick up after themselves. --Due to age of the resort, some areas needed attention. Ex: cracked floor and pool tiles. --Need more chairs/seating during showtimes. Some shows were not that great. Jamaican dancers and Michael Jackson was good though. --More activities would be nice. RIU properties in Mexico had more going on. Communication about paddle boards, kayaks, etc. would have been nice. Boogie boards would have been fun to have available. --No coffee maker in room. --Could use a couple more nice restaurants to dine in at night. A Brazilian or Mexican restaurant would be a good addition. All in all, a nice resort. I would recommend to friends and family. This is a 4 star resort and I feel the rating is appropriate.

Great family Christmas vacation! Great family Christmas vacation!

Not very pleasant experience for the amount

Cheap Caribbean didn’t help much with the issues with the resort. Resort didn’t give us proper rooms. Liquor and beverages quality is very low. Food was pathetic two my family members were sick after having food. We paid 7.6k usd for this trip but not worth it. I will NOT recommend this place to anyone

Nice vacation/location but rundown resort

We went to Riu Ocho Ríos for our honeymoon. When we first got there they checked us in very quickly and upgraded our room to beach front room since it was our homeymoon. Room was very old, definitely needs renovated along with the rest of the resort. Most staff were nice except they didn’t seem happy and overworked and underpaid. Next time we vacation in Jamaica we will choose a newer built resort. Otherwise, food was good, beach was amazing, location was perfect for excursions close by.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

There's Red Stripe Beer in the fridge. Every. Day.

The stress-ousting massages and treatments at the Renova Spa. Swoon.

The Jerk Chicken Hut on the beach. You'll be jammin' here ofter. Probably daily.

The phrase you hear everywhere, "No problem, Mon." Go ahead and start practicing.

The epic snorkeling that's right on the beach. Brightly colored fish will make your underwater pics dazzle.

Dunn's River Falls and swimming with the dolphins - close by and always touristy fun.

 

What We'd Change

The drive to the resort will take about an hour, but once you step foot onto the resort grounds, you'll be in love.

 

Why You Should Go

It's so worth it to upgrade to the Deluxe Wing - concierge service 24/7.

You can get a free introductory to scuba lesson in the pool. Dive in!

There are water sports out the wazoo - windsurfing, kayaking and snorkeling.

On land, you can play tennis, volleyball and take an aerobics class.

The entertainment team blows it out, starting with the nightly reggae, steel drums & chill beats.

The botanical gardens of Canbrook aren't your average "flower forest." It's uber lush.
